The Chiefs Esports Club have been crowned the champions of the Oceanic Pro League for the second time this year in a dominating display of skill against Oceania’s best, refusing to drop a single game in the playoff bracket. The grand final set was held at the Courier-Mail Piazza in Brisbane on Saturday night. Their opponents were their longest standing rivals, Legacy Esports, who also stood against them this time last year.
With this title in hand, the Chiefs are looking past the local competition and towards the possibility of clashing with major regions at 2016 Season World Championship — which this year will be a month long affair across four locations in the US.
However, The Chiefs will have to overcome their repeated shortcomings against the minor regions at the International Wildcard Qualifier (IWCQ) which will begin later this month in São Paulo, Brazil. Last year at the IWCQ in Turkey, despite the team’s promising 4-2 record in the group stage they failed to overcome the Bangkok Titans who took the best of five set 3-1.
